BlockEx, which has offices in London, Sofia and Luxembourg, is a blockchain startup which serves financial institutions.

The firm was accepted in July to the sandbox of the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority in order to test this latter service. It was one of 29 approved, out of 69 applicants.

Football Media is a “digital advertising platform” that helps “brands to effectively engage with a large predominately male audience that has a wide range of consumer interests,” according to its website. It claims to register 41 million unique visitors to its 200 websites monthly.

In January 2018, the BlockEx raised $24 million in a private sale to accredited investors, and a further $28.4 million in an initial coin offering in February.
